|Bio and Links|
I am a member and Director of Plymouth County Genealogists, Inc. (PCGI), and currently President of the Friends of Middleborough Cemeteries, Inc. (FoMC). I have researched my Family History and now really enjoy contributing to the knowledge of all people of the past. My non-family memorials focus on my town of Bridgewater, MA and the neighboring areas.|
POSTERITY: I publish photos and create memorials here for the benefit of present and future generations. If you want to publish my gravestone photos on any website that you contribute to (except FindaGrave, according to FAQ#142), include in the photo caption "used with the written permission of Chip5610 (#46997557) at FindaGrave" and keep a screen-print of this page for your records. Copyright laws require you to obtain permission to use a photograph, and conditionally - based on your integrity - you have it! Understand that merely attributing credit does not comply with the law.
Building a cemetery index: I invest a lot of time developing and maintaining the cemetery page listings for Southeastern Massachusetts (maps for Plymouth and Bristol and Norfolk counties) and several other counties in the state. I add new cemeteries and I remove "incorrect" cemeteries. I improve existing cemetery pages by adding cemetery photos and the GPS coordinates. To each cemetery description, I add the GR identifiers from the MA Vital Records books and the MACRIS identifier to each Massachusetts cemetery description. MACRIS identifiers are an important first step in protecting a Massachusetts cemetery. Knowing where a cemetery is located is the first step in preserving the cemetery and finding a grave.
Assistance: The structure of the site engenders collaboration. The "Suggest a Correction (SAC)" feature is great, so use it liberally! My e-mail was set-up specifically for FindaGrave matters, so feel free to send as many SACs as you want. This is a great hobby, and I will work with anyone, happily! My only request: Say 'Thank You'!

|Annie Blanchard||Thank YOU!!!|
Hi, Chip! Thank you so much for the picture of Caroline Kendall Blanchard and the rest of the family! She and Bradford are my gr gr gr grandparents!
You also got her mother, Caroline Adams Kendall... I'm awe struck!
This saves me some time on my upcoming visit this fall - I may visit their graves, but I won't need to search high and low to find them -- beautiful pictures!
This means a lot! I know how hard it is, I spent hours today myself looking for graves here and could not find them...
Thank you again! (Can I use these on my ancestry.com Family Tree with credit to you?)

|Dean DeLillo||Carnello / Cornell|
I have a Location Card for a St. Mary's Cemetery. I thought it was for the one in Middleboro, since there are other Carnello's buried there. The card is for "Bengamin Cornell". (Older records have him as Benino Carnello.)
The card states:
Buried Oct 21, 1918
Any thoughts on whether this grave is in this St. Mary's Cemetery?
|David Erin Butler||William and Sarah Barrell|
Thank you so very much for the time and effort it takes to photograph headstones for those of us who live too far away.
|amwj1||Jonathan Harden photo request|
Thank you for clarification of his actual burial location! That led me to more ancestors. Thank you!!
